About The Mystery of Charles Dickens

Famed for his roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral, A Room with a View and Amadeus, Simon Callow presents an exhilarating one man show following the hugely successful Being Shakespeare. In The Mystery of Charles Dickens, 49 of the est loved characters are brought to life from his incredible array of stories including Fagin from Oliver Twist, Scrooge from A Christmas Carol and Miss Haversham  from Great Expectations.
